Welcome to our cozy apartment in one of the most fun neighborhoods in Dallas. It is a one bedroom apartment in one of the original houses on the block. The apartment has its own private entrance. We are less than 2 blocks away from the Lower Greenville strip with restaurants, shops, nightlife and great people watching. The apartment is newly designed with everything you will need for a comfortable home away from home.
About The Apartment:
Our home was built in 1926 and keeps its old charm in the addition to modern amenities. There are two living quarters in the main house and one in back. The guest apartment is in the main house.
We renovated the guest apartment in April, 2013. The main room combines living and kitchen space. There is a comfortable sofa in the living room that opens into a spare double bed. The flatscreen TV has cable from Uverse. You have your own wireless internet access. If you don’t want to walk down the street to any of the cool restaurants, you can prepare your own dinner in the compact kitchenette which is equipped with an under-the-counter fridge, microwave/convection oven, stovetop and dishes. This kitchenette is for occasional cooking only. Wood floors throughout make it easy for us to keep the apartment clean for you. The bathroom has the original claw-foot tub with a pretty fancy shower system attached. The bed in the beautiful bedroom is a new queen sized bed that is so comfortable, you just don’t want to get up!
The house shares cable access and electricity, however the guest apartment has its own private wifi and central heat and air. We could not fit a washer and dryer in the apartment, so we suggest nearby bundle laundry service or laundrymats. We will launder sheets and towels once a week. Parking is on the street in front of the house. The apartment is not childproof and is too small to accommodate children. The apartment is pet-free. However we do know of some good doggie hotels in the area.
We work full time, so this is not a hotel or BnB. It is a great place to stay for a short or long visit to Dallas.
Other things to note
Because our place is small, we recommend only two guests with no children. If you have a third person visiting for part of your stay, please let us know and we can talk through best ways to accommodate you.
The bed has a "comfort foam" on top of a firm mattress to give it that "I don't want to get out of bed" luxury feel. If you prefer a more firm bed, it is very easy to remove the foam top.
Street parking is available during your stay. Please do not block or park in the driveway or back.
In season you are welcome to herbs from the herb garden below your bedroom window.
If there is anything that does not work, or needs repair, please let me know right away or leave me a note so that we can repair/replace it promptly.
Please do not have any extra overnight guests.
We do not use bleach on our towels and linens, so please try to keep makeup and other hard-to-remove stains off of the whites. We have lovely Oil of Olay makeup removers for you.
Please try to leave the Apartment in the same good shape you found it.
We will help you enjoy your stay and we will respect your privacy. Please be respectful of your neighbors with regards to noise and reasonable hours. Our place is too small for parties, so please respect that.

I have traveled around the world and love to meet new people. And yet, I am most happy when I am home with a good book or sitting around with friends. I think that is the reason I like the concept of Airbnb - enjoying that "home" feel even when traveling.
